Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris A recent vague announcement on osol-announce hints that something big is rumbling for OpenSolaris: "A number of the community leaders from the OpenSolaris community have been working quietly together on a new effort called Illumos, and we're just about ready to fully disclose our work to, and invite the general participation of, the general public." They have a website, and they're going to be hosting a conference call on August 3.

These are my thoughts exactly. The benefit of Opensolaris was that it was/is a pre-preview version of the upcoming Solaris, but backed by the company. You could be assured that new features would eventually make it into the preview version of Solaris and quite possibly,the general OS release. Will contributions from this go into Opensolaris if it continues or pre-Solaris? The relationship will be the most interesting to me.
